This Trillium has been given the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society for its top performance in the garden. The luminous white flowers that often fade to pink are perfect for brightening up a shady, moist bed or woodland garden in mid to late spring. The large, broad-petalled flowers are a knockout.
- Garden care:Plant rhizomes 5cm deep and 5cm apart in autumn. Once planted they are best left undisturbed so they can build up their numbers. Mulch in the autumn with a generous layer of leafmould.
